Re: question about the Hard Disk EEPROM

You are welcome!

Yes, the .bin file + eg. XboxHDM is all you need to unlock the HDD on your PC if need be.

Using XboxHDM you will need to rename it to eeprom.bin (lower case is obligatory, won't work otherwise).

Re: question about the Hard Disk EEPROM

Well, it is a series of numbers and letters but it does not make sense to input these manually. Config Magic creates an eeprom.bin file, and this is what you need to lock/ unlock a Hdd, as XboxHDM reads from an eeprom.bin file as well. Also, eeprom.cfg and eeprom.txt are created, which contain the s...

Re: question about the Hard Disk EEPROM

Yes, you can get the eeprom backup and lock/ unlock your HDD on your PC!

To get the eeprom I use Config Magic Final on the Xbox, then FTP to PC.
To lock/ unlock on my PC I was successful with Xbox HDM 2.2 USB edition.

You will find all the necessary tutorials on the web.

Hope this helps!

Re: 2tb HDD boot time

Problem solved :) This is how it happened: Boot time did not change after filling about 200 GB on the drive. Then, while FTPing to G: some files were stuck, there was no way to FTP them. I reformatted G: with XBpartioner 1.1 - LBA84 patch v3. Not only did it fix the transfer problem, but also the bo...

Working youtube plugin?

Is there any working youtube plugin at the moment? All the versions I have tried are not working.
If so, can someone post a link/ info how to download?

Thanks!

2tb Hdd Seagate weird noises - WTH?

So, my new HDD simply beeps/ blips/ chirps or whatever you call it. The sound is very similar to a beep of PC speaker, eg. when a PC starts. The beep (produced by the HDD mechanism) happens repeatedly every second when the HDD is working but not recognised (eg. Xbox with a wrong adapter or PC while ...

Re: Xecuter 3 Skins

Great, thank you :)

I used to have these skins but they were gone together with my broken HDD.

If anyone has some more, please feel free to post :) Especially the one from the film with an X3 photo in the background looks pretty cool!

Excellent news Xphazer, and thank you! I thought you had already forgotten about your promise :) If BuZz is interested enough to play with 128 mb, a new chapter for XBMC4XBOX may open. Just great!

Re: Just a few words...

@Geeba Yes, I'm using Coinops4, and it is indeed awesome! Coinops alone is a great reason to have the Xbox. Also, the emulators from EmuXtras are amazing, fortunately I had a backup of them on my PC as they have already disappeared form the web for some reason (games, artwork and movies, that is); b...

Re: So i found trusty's email from xbscene.

I was only ever interested in 720p... but there never seemed to be a pure 720p review of the mods... AVI & MKV etc... 1080i/p is always going to be a complete no chance... As far as I can tell from experience, there isn't any significant difference on 720p between trusty and regular Xbox. Maybe 10%...
